    Researchers say there is a one in six chance of a magnitude 7 event in the
    next century.

    The world is “woefully underprepared” for a gigantic volcanic eruption
    which could end civilisation and could cause climate change says Dr Lara
    Mani, of Cambridge University.

    Dr Mani said: "Such gigantic eruptions have caused abrupt climate change
    and collapse of civilisations in the distant past.

    “Hundreds of millions of dollars are pumped into asteroid threats every
    year, yet there is a severe lack of global financing and co-ordination for volcano preparedness.

    “This urgently needs to change. We are completely underestimating the risk
    to our societies that volcanoes pose.”

    The effect of a magnitude 7 event would be similar to a 1km-wide asteroid blasting the Earth, however the event of an eruption of a volcano stands
    to be much more likely than an astroid hitting the Earth.

    Not only would an eruption cause a massive haemorrhage to the economy,
    costing an amount that would be in the trillions, but the fatality rate
    would be as lethal as the Covid-19 pandemic.

    Dr Mani further added that: "The Tonga eruption was the volcanic
    equivalent of an asteroid just missing the Earth and needs to be treated
    as a wake-up call.

    “Volcanologists have been calling for a dedicated volcano-monitoring
    satellite for over 20 years. The current underinvestment is simply
    reckless.”

    This news came after one of the most active volcanos in Japan erupted
    which caused the evacuation of hundreds of residents in the Japanese
    island of Kyushu.

    The world is woefully unprepared for any number of mega disasters: supervolcanos, earthquakes above 9.0 on which ever scale you want,
    asteroid impacts,artifical bacterium with a taste for petro chemicals,

    I suppose next we'll be warned about yet another "Bronze Age Collapse":
